in the spotlight as mitt romney and president obama try to sway voters today in the critical battleground state. >>> plus, trying to avoid a repeat of the monday night mess, the deal that gets the nfl's referees back on the field. good morning, everybody. i'm aaron gilchrist. >> and i'm eun yang. we're waking up to some rain, but it was nothing like last night. this was the view from chopper 4 as thunderstorms moved through part of our region last night. we're going to find out whether or not we're going to have any more storms today. >> somehow i sleep through this stuff completely. >> that's what i was going to say. >> you said whoo like you definitely meant it. >> i had no clue. other than the fact that you told me yesterday. >> i showed you cooper in the closet. >> doesn't quite amount to lightning, but okay. calmer today maybe? >> a little calmer today. for most of the day it's going to be calm. but out there this morning, we've got the big puddles, the small puddles. some areas don't have any puddles at all. adams morgan at 67. we've got 65 in springfield, and potomac, virginia, right now
romney voters by portraying this race as obama walk. but the people that are taking accurate polls. the people i'm in touch with. people who work with me and scott rasmussen, the only pollster that really is doing it correctly all have this race very different. rasmussen coming up behind you. he is coming up next. >> and a raiser thin edge against in him in ohio. >> bill: wait, wait. dick, wait. you know, you have got -- you make a provocative statement like that. you have got to stop and we have to walk through it. okay? now, you. >> walk away. >> bill: you assert that the fix is in. na is a fairly bold and fresh assertion. you say. >> fresh piece of humanity. >> bill: "new york times," quinnipiac, marist college, all of them are doing the numbers they are cooking the books so that the president goes better in the polling so that he gets more money from his donors. can you back it up? >> yes. all of these polls are assuming a very high turnout among african-americans latinos and young people. that produces a skew that makes them vastly more democratic than the actual sample itself
, especially those that take a poll of likely voters, they've got president obama and governor romney pretty close. but doug schoen, now he's a pollster with 35 years of experience says we're doing the voters a major disservice by focusing on those polls. he says there's something missing. we'll have the full story for you, it will be one of our new at ten stories and doug will join us to talk about it, with us the full hour at ten o'clock. president obama continues to double down on green energy. smith electric received 32 million dollars of taxpayer grants to build a battery powered vehicle factory in kansas city. here is president obama visiting that plant in 2010. >> one of those decisions was to provide critical funding to promising innovative businesses like smith electric vehicles. and because we did, there's a thriving enterprise here instead of an empty, darkened warehouse. because of the grant that went to this company, we can hear the sounds of machines humming and people doing their work instead of just the ghostly silence of an emptied out building and the memory of workers who
president obama. but mitt isn't having it, trying to get ohio voters to the right by focusing on the economy. >> with incomes going down, every year, every year going down, down, down. prices of electricity up and health insurance up and the cost of gasoline, having doubled, these are tough times. even for families with jobs. i know what it takes to get this economy going again. cheryl: so what would a tax plan under a romney/ryan administration look like? rich edson breaks it down for us. rich? >> reporter: well, cheryl, democrats call it a giveaway to the rich at the expense of the middle class. republicans say they're wrong, and this morning governor romney defended his tax plan. >> by the way, don't be expecting a huge cut in taxes because i'm also going to lower deductions and exemptions. by bringing rates down, we'll be able to let small businesses keep more of their money to hire more people. >> in the end the details are really up to congress. romney's proposed cutting every tax rate by 20%. to insure the treasury department takes in about the same amount of money under a new system,
down nearly half of the nation's voters as dead beats. 54% of registered voters have an unfavorable view of comments while 32% viewed them as favorable. and now he addressed the voters directly. >> romney: president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is my policies will make things better for them. >> eliot: romney even praised his massachusetts health care program, romney told nbc news, and i quote . . . one can only imagine what would have hand if romney had embraced his health care plan at the start of this raisin stead of running away from it. according to the "new york times" cbs news poll of three swing states the president leads his challenger by 12 points. mr. obama is out in front in florida by nine points, and in ohio, president obama is up by ten points. but some republicans seem to have trouble accepting the polls as valid. >> i trust our numbers, and that's what we're basing our decisions off of. >> eliot: good luck with that. in ohio romney accepted the endorsement of golf legend jack nicolaus. >> romney: it
voters aren't enthusiastic enough about president obama to go to the polls. he thinks voters are much more revved up about mitt romney. what do you think? >> certainly in virginia where there's a significant african-american population, it remains very much engaged. and one of the things that the obama campaign has been doing this year as it did in '08 is trying to be as visible as possible in areas where there are large numbers of african-americans though there is still a strong republican tendency. and the point of that exercise is to run as closely to romney in areas of the state where he should do exceptionally well as possible. >> jeff shapiro, thank you so much for being with us this morning. >> thank you. >>> there is a reason why virginia is a battle ground state. it's close race. but the president is inching forward. this is the average of recent polls. as of last week, more likely voters in virginia would choose president obama 50% to 44%. a new softer mitt romney is emerging on the campaign trail because of these numbers in part. maybe compassionate conservatism is back. al
are somewhat suspect. first the "the washington post" poll in florida. it has president obama leading romney by 4 points. 51% 47%. the "new york times" poll has obama up by 9 points. 53 percent, 44%. same state, same likely voter scenario. in ohio, "the washington post" has the president up by 8. 52% 44%. "times" poll has obama up by 10 over romney. 53%, 43%. however, in the rasmussen daily tracking poll, the national survey, the race is tied. a dead heat 46% 46%. on this day four years ago, rasmussen had mr. obama up by 5 points over john mccain. 50%, 45%. a case could be made that mitt romney is doing better than john mccain did. but that might be misleading. the presidential race is going to come down to just a handful of states ohio and florida being the most important governor romney plus win in both places that's why today's polling news is causing controversy. talking points has said from the very beginning that the debates this year will be the deciding factor one week from tonight in denver, colorado, the president will meet the governor at :00 p.m. eastern time. no question and all
those key issues right now are trending towards president obama in the voters' minds and people getting comfortable with the idea of a second term. >> gretchen: 40 days and counting and three debates. thanks. have a great day. >> you too. >> gretchen: police department going to the dogs. there is only one officer left. it's a police dog. a new way to celebrate your child's birthday. the man behind alligator pool parties here next i knew it'd be tough on our retirement savings, especially in this economy. but with three kids, being home more really helped. man: so we went to fidelity. we talked about where we were and what we could do. we changed our plan and did something about our economy. now we know where to go for help if things change again. call or come in today to take control of your personal economy. get free one-on-one help from america's retirement leader. for the spender who needs a little help saving. for adding "& sons." for the dreamer, planning an early escape. for the mother of the bride. for whoever you are, for whatever you're trying to achieve, pnc has technology, gu
is obama taking the lead for the first time in who voters trust going forward. >> and he doesn't have a message that is consistent. because in ohio, he confused his tax message. so if he is going to offer tax ve s amount of money because i'm going to eliminate deductions, but president obama actually didn't inease your taxes, which was a misstatement of his past -- in the last 48 hours, he has completely muddled his taxmessage, and you c dot rliann against an incumbent president who's popular. >> the romney people thought that this was going to be a referendum on barack oma and that they wouldn't have to put forward new ideas. here we have a situation where the president hasn't told us anything about what he's going to do in the second term. heet awit. you know, i had this thought the other day with the debates coming up. i can't remember a single thing that bill clinton said or did in the 1996 debates against bob dole. and i think that that is exact what barack obama'soal i or neew we >> and you know, joe, the thing that's so fascinating is that 've ended up, because both candidates
allow eligible voters to vote. >> president obama is lucky to have you working for him this time around. the show is "scandal." her character, olivia hope, has an affair with the president of the united states on the show. second season getting ready. always good to see you. >> thursday nights on another network. >> great to see you. >> thanks. >> "morning joe" is coming right back. woman 1: this isn't just another election. we're voting for... the future of our medicare and social security. man 1: i want facts. straight talk. tell me your plan... and what it means for me. woman 2: i'm tired of the negative ads and political spin. that won't help me decide. man 2: i earned my medicare and social security. and i deserve some answers. anncr: where do the candidates stand on issues that... affect seniors today and in the future? find out with the aarp voters' guide at earnedasay.org ♪ playing a lone hand ♪ my life begins today ♪ ♪ fly by night away from here ♪ ♪ change my life again ♪ ♪ fly by night, goodbye my dear ♪ ♪ my ship isn't coming ♪ and i just can't preten
that obama has moved out of the margin of error in the swing states so it will now be much harder for romney to see a path, a strategic path to victory. >> most voters identify the economy and jobs as the number- one issue. in this poll, all three swing states pennsylvania ohio and florida have a majority of voters choosing the president as their man to lead the charge, something we have not seen before >> notice that he has managed to weather the concern about the economy largely because romney has not convinced people that he will be a preferable alternative. >> presidential campaigns are character tests >> he is a campaign strategist and has worked with both bill and hillary clinton and al gore and he says it is not over yet >> particularly in the age of replacement referee is that we see in the nfl, the obama campaign should not be celebrating in the end zone too early. >> after republican nominee mitt romney was seen talking about the 47 percent who do not pay income taxes in a secret recording >> last week for romney will arguably go down as one of the worst week's presidential candida
. the obama campaign is out with a new ad where the president looks into the camera and seems to be making a closing argument to the voters out there. >> during the last weeks of this campaign, there will be debates, speeches and more ads. if i could sit down with you in your living room or around the kitchen table, here's what i'd say. when i took office, we were losing nearly 800,000 jobs a month and were mired in iraq. today i believe as a nation we are moving forward again. >> nbc's first read makes the point about this ad. they say this new obama spot has the feeling of a closing tv ad 10 days out from an election day because the obama camp believes we're ten days out or already there. mark murray joins me from washington. it's interesting, president obama described former president clinton as the commander in chief of explaining stuff or something. you get that feel with in closing ad. you and your team point out that so many states already are in the process of early voting and we'll have even more at end of next week. >> we're 40 days from election day, and that ad that president o
which some have cast as romney's make or break moment. he urges the voters to consider mr. obama's actions not his words. >> you can be extraordinarily eloquent and describe all the wonderful things you can do, but when you cut through the words, you can look at the record. and when you can see policies that have not created the jobs america needs, then you know it's time to choose a new leader. >> reporter: president obama even tried to turn a stumble into a stinging critique. >> i want to see us export more jobs, export more products, excuse me. i was -- i was channeling my opponent there for a second. >> reporter: and earlier this week, mitt romney told me he's not worried about the polls, the polls go up and they go down. but savannah, where they are right now does begin to matter. beginning today as many as 30 states are voting with absentee or early voting. iowa, the latest state to vote, early voting there begins today. >> all right. peter alexander in the battleground of virginia, thank you very much. >>> let us get a check of the rest of the morning's top stories. >> goo
tried to connect with voters in a new ad in which he looked directly at the camera, president obama is out with his own doing the very same thing. >> too many americans are struggling to find work in today's economy. too many of those who are working are living paycheck to paycheck. >> today i believe that as a nation we are moving forward again. we have much more to do, to get folks back to work and make the
. this is an oxymoron, but they will be lovingly booed as well. >> and both president obama and mitt romney are campaigning in the battleground state of virginia today after courting voters in ohio wednesday. a new nationwide gallup poll of registered voters shows the president leading romney 50-44%. jan crawford caught up with romney wednesday as he faced new pressure from republicans to get tougher. >> good morning. romney really has taken some hits in the polls, and conservatives, his supporters, are really getting anxious. they're starting to get nervous that time is running out. i had a chance to talk to him yesterday before a big rally in ohio. and i picked up none of that from romney, no kind of anxiety, no nervousness. he looked very measured like someone who is going to stay the course, stay on message. he talked a lot about the debate, and that's a chance for the american people to kind of see his message and also for him to show what he says is some false attacks by the president. he had some pretty harsh words for the president, too, and his campaign. take a listen to that. >> t
is an ad you almost play out before election date. the obama campaign is treating this like a week out before election day because precisely all this early voting. 30 states across the country, voters in those states a voting in some form or fashion, whether it's absentee or early at includes in the battleground states of iowa, north carolina, new hampshire, wisconsin and virginia. tamron, next week ohio and floridstart voting in some form or fashion. voting is under way, even though election day is 40 days from now. >> talkbo sta states. we have maps built in to give people a glimpse of nationde how many states are in the process of early voting. we have the map. some of them at the end of the week, but mark, is there anything to compare this to at least fromheasen well, in the last general election we also saw a lot of early voting in a lot of states. some states scaled back a little bit on the early voting, but i think it's here to stay going forward. what's interesting isheba campaign saw early voting as a way to maximize their folks and bank the votes on their side. for example, w
as a trade cheater are aimed at voters in northern ohio and around the great lakes where the auto workers are, but obama has been running his own ads hitting china, so i think they kind of neutralize one another. we had a report this morning that durable goods orders have dropped the most since january 09. orders for motor vehicles and motor vehicle parts dropped 11% in august. whatever obama did to bail out the auto industry, those people working in the industries in the northern ohio are the ones affected by a figure like that. and i don't quite understand why romney isn't going directly at obama's economic record, while obama has been president. connell: because in that part of the world, in ohio, and particularly where they were both yesterday. they are going to be in virginia today. but they were both in ohio yesterday, and obama is leading big there if you believe the latest polls. yesterday there was an argument that hey some of the democrats are being more sampled in some of these polls. what do you think about that? >> if a poll in ohio says that obama is ahead by 8 or 10 points, i t
